The Problem

By the year 2050, nearly 80% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers. Applying the most conservative estimates to current demographic trends, the human population will increase by about 3 billion people during the interim. An estimated 109 hectares of new land (about 20% more land than is represented by the country of Brazil) will be needed to grow enough food to feed them, if traditional farming practices continue as they are practiced today. At present, throughout the world, over 80% of the land that is suitable for raising crops is in use (sources: FAO and NASA). Historically, some 15% of that has been laid waste by poor management practices. What can be done to avoid this impending disaster?
A potential solution: Indoor farming

RE: Vertical Farms!!
I'm all for urban farming, but I'm not for agenda 21/30 nonsense. Why force people to herd together like animals to "save" the earth?

Technology can provide as many answers as technocrats can come up with, and better and more efficient.

Want a solution to our current woes? Develop thorium breeder reactors that recycle 99% of spent fuel and have the best energy density known to man with zero carbon emissions.

Hydroponics = 15 to 20 TIMES the production of dirt land, and only 10% of the water!

How hot? Because jungles are very hot, they just have lots of precipitation.
